Scott V. Adrian
Award winning author, Scott V. Adrian, was born in 1988 in Los Angeles California. Like Graeme he came from an unremarkable upbringing and was generally happy and raised to work hard for what you want.
He was allowed to indulge in media at an early age, leading to his love of cartoons and fantasy. While his mother was an avid book reader, she never pressured him to share that hobby of hers. One hobby they did share was going to the movies. Scott never missed the big fantasy/animated releases including any star wars, harry potter, lord of the rings and super hero flicks.
Later in his teens Scott found a love of anime. He contributes a lot of his story structure and flow to the hundreds of anime series he binged over the years. His distaste for dubbed animes is also what he thinks grew his reading abilities as subtitles were his preference.
He began reading seriously late in life. Before the age of 28, Scott had only read 2 fantasy novels. Starting with a few audio books, he eventually got hooked on scifi/fantasy novels. He quickly read 20 or so books, before getting the feeling that he was being unproductive. This feeling resulted in his journey to begin writing his own novel.
Career wise, Scott went from a musician to professional piercer and then post production coordinator before landing on a long career as a software engineer. His resume includes programming for companies such as Disney, Warner Bros, and Universal.
His wife is an extremely intelligent person who pushes him to do more and better with his life. His two daughters are an endless source of joy and imagination. Without them he feels he couldn’t imagine his work being any good.
